Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGHLY RECOMMEND I truly believe this book should be manditory for all students, from either junior high to high scool, to read. It opened my eyes so much, I will never look at a tree or plant the same again. It makes so much sense, it is almost scary that all of the research in it is not mainstream and our children are not taught about the wonderful, miraculous world of plants. I don't have children now, but when I do, you can be sure I will teach them what I've learned in this book. Thanks for this oppurtunity. Peace.
